Bioinformatics Recipes

Your progress in the course: 0%

This course has launched on October 1st, 2018 and is part of the graduate level BMMB 852: Applied Bioinformatics course at Penn State.

Lectures and new recipes will be published on an approximately weekly schedule.

Each lecture in this course covers a specific data analysis protocol with one or more example workflows. The course is a companion to the Learn Bioinformatics in 100 hours course and the Biostar Handbook.

In addition, we have developed a new web service that allows readers to investigate the output of each of these workflows.

To see how each recipe works in practice visit the Bioinformatics Cookbook.
